Let's get started!


You will need:
Approx 100 g size 4 yarn (I used Red Heart with Love and I Love this Yarn)
Crochet Hook in Size 4.0 or 3.75
Tapestry Needle
Polyfil or preferred stuffing
12 mm safety eyes
12 mm safety nose (you can also use yarn!)
stitch marker
glue gun

Always move your stitch marker to the last stitch in the round. This pattern is worked in
continuous rounds.

Round 3: SC in first, SC INC in next. Repeat around. (18)
Round 4-28: SC in each stitch around. (18)
Fasten off.
Repeat for the second leg but do not fasten off. Instead, chain 3 and then SC in the next stitch of the other leg. Take care to crochet over the tail left over by fastening off. SC around the entire leg. When you come to the three chains, SC in each chain across. Then around the next leg. SC over the chain back to the other leg. In the last SC on the last chain place your stitch marker. (This is round 29.)

Tail
Make a small pom pom, about an inch around. I used the smallest clover pom pom maker, but a fork would work pretty well. Leave two long ends (the yarn you use to tie it together) to sew on. I made multiple passes and double knotted. Use a drop or two of really hot glue from a glue gun to prevent losing yarn.

Free Crochet Pattern Gold Medal


In honor of the Olympic games coming up (which I am RIDICULOUSLY excited for!) I am sharing a free gold medal pattern! You can also make it in silver or bronze... But I am all about the gold!
This is a super quick project but holds up really well... Make it while watching the opening ceremonies, or gymnastics, or swimming... and have it ready to go by the time they award the medals and the national anthem is playing. 
I used a size H hook (5.0) and Red Heart With Love in red, white, and blue, and Caron's Simply Soft in Gold for the medal.


Here we go!
Row 1: With the red chain 101. Turn.
Row 2:In second chain from the hook HDC. HDC to the end. Attach white and turn. (100)
Row 3: HDC in each stitch across. Attach blue and turn. (100)
Row 4: HDC in each stitch across. Fasten off. (100)
Sew the ends together (make sure the "ribbon" is not twisted!)
Medal (Make 2)
Round: In a magic circle, add 12 DC. Slip stitch to first stitch. chain 2
Round 2: 2 DC in each stitch around. Slip stitch to first. Chain 2 (24)
Round 3: 2 DC in first, DC in next. Repeat around. Slip sitch to first. Fasten off. (36)
Slip stitch the two pieces together. (You can do only one, but the two together gives it more substance.)
Sew onto the ribbon part and there you go!

Best Crochet Gifts for the Crochet Enthusiast


(This post contains affiliate links! For more information see policies)

My birthday is coming up this month (the big 2-6!) as well as the birthday of my business (3 years!) Maybe small change comparatively, but I am feeling grateful and excited to see where this years takes me! 
Around this time my husband starts to get an anxious look in his eye, and tries to drop hints asking me to drop hints about what I might like for a birthday present. And I eye roll because I feel like I drop hints ALL THE TIME!! But he is a busy man, and like many other loving spouses, significant others, or friends and family, has a hard time deciding what to do for birthdays (or anniversaries, or Christmas, or...). So I decided, as a favor to my husband and all those out there who get stressed at the gift giving time, to compile a list of the Best Crochet Gifts for the Crochet Enthusiast. It's a fun list if you are looking for yourself (I am a great believer in the occasional gift to oneself!). Or a helpful list to share, send, tweet, tag, etc. to someone as a not so subtle hint! If you are here as a result of such a sharing, bless. You are already doing pretty dang good.

Before I start the list, the best thing to get is yarn. Always. But I like to pick out my own, so a gift card to their favorite craft store is never a bad way to go. If they have way too much yarn (which is OPINION!) then check out these things! 

One of the things I have wanted for pretty much ever is a Furl's Crochet Hook. These hooks are AMAZING. And you know what else?? It is a company that was started with handcarving every hook (check out these gorgeous wood ones!) and the people I talked to were incredible and so so kind. I can not stop raving about this company and these hooks! Check out THIS. These are seriously people I want to get behind and support!
Guys, seriously look. They are so dreamy.
They are all backed by science and research and yada yada (its cool but I just want to crochet, you know?). Seriously, go read the testimonials!
Or if you want, just enter for a chance to win a 5.5 Odyssey Hook of your very own!! (Check it out below!)


I am oohing and ahhing over these amazing borders!
I have been eyeing this one for a while, too! I love the vintagey feel these animals have. I'm dying to try that fuzzy monkey!
These hooks are an amazing deal and come with such a cool case! So helpful for traveling and storage!!



Those colors!! I want the pattern for that circle blanket BAD. So much pretty in this book!  
 I want this book BAD! Look how cute those letters are! They would make amazing gifts. All 26 capital letter patterns. The Alphabet in 3D
Don't these puzzle balls look like a blast!? I bet they would be a hit at baby showers! (also craft fairs!!)
Crocheted sea creatures looks like so much fun! I REALLY really REALLY want to try out that shark on the cover!




I absolutely love having these! I know you CAN make a pom pom without them, but they are so much easier with one! I use them for all kinds of things... Well worth the money!


How cute are these animal heads?
I think these dolls are super cute... and those clothes!
These stitch markers are my absolute favorite. I have had them for almost a year and I have never had one break or come apart!

This is another Mooncie book... and its amazing! There is a reversible chameleon! You seriously reverse it and have a totally different colored chameleon! Cool, huh?




These are my go to hooks! A little pricier, but oh so worth it! I love having so many sizes in one pack, too!
I have always wanted a yarn winder... But just haven't made the push for one yet! This one got great reviews on Amazon!


I have this and LOVE it! I have two young boys and no craft room. I crochet out "in the open" and sometimes need to put away projects quickly (WHYYY do babies love to pull on yarn)! Has a place for hooks and scissors so I especially love it for when I am traveling!

SO I have an AWESOME GIVEAWAY for you today! The very generous people at Furl's Crochet have sent me one of their Odyssey Hooks and one of you has a chance to win!
(Must be a US resident and over 18 years of age to enter!)
